Abstract

A revision of the numerical results presented in a previous paper on the same subject is given, based on correction of a computer program. The revision has a significant effect on the ability to obtain independent measurement of a pair of closely spaced objects only for very small object separation. It is now found that the dependence of measurement precision on object separation follows a power law for these small separations. An adjustment to the resolution scale is also presented.
